Picture Keeper Review and Giveaway!!!

Do you take tons of pictures?  Are you always worried about losing those precious memories if something happened to your computer?

I know I am.

About 5 years ago, our computer crashed.  It completely died and we couldn't recover almost 2 years worth of digital images.  Thankfully I had printed many of them out.  But that was 5 years ago.  Now I am lucky if I print out 25% of the pictures that I take each year.

A few months ago, I began to back up my pictures on discs.  It took forever!  I gave up.

Then last month, I received an email from Picture Keeper.  I read all about their product and was so excited to try it out!  I agreed to do a product review...PLUS a giveaway for my readers and a special discount for anyone who wants to purchase one. 

My Picture Keeper PK-4, which holds up to 4000 pictures, came in the mail in only 2 days! 

PK 4
It is awesome!  All you do is plug in your picture keeper, open the program, Click Start Backup, and voila...your pictures are safely saved!!!! It is that simple.

The Picture Keeper does not require any additional software to load on your computer.  AND it's PC and Mac compatible. 

It's so easy!!!  It will never save the same picture twice.  It only saves new or modified pictures every time you back up your images.   

I know I will actually be ordering an additional picture keeper, since my computer had over 13,000 images.  I can't believe how simple it was to back up my pictures!  And now I have the peace of mind knowing that if something happens to my computer, at least my pictures are safe and sound!

This image is very close to the actual size of the Picture Keeper!

There are several options when ordering the Picture Keeper.  You can get:
PK-4:  Stores up to 4000 images*
PK-8:  Stores up to 8000 images
PK-16:  Stores up to 16,000 images
PK PRO:  Stores up to 250,000 image

I received no compensation for this product review.  I did receive the PK-4 free of charge in order to try the product


  1. Just reading about this product stressed me out thinking about how many places ask my pictures are... And what woulda happen if any of my computers crashed... Definitely need the picture keeper!

  2. Like you, our computer crashed about 3 years ago and we had to get a new one. We had the hard drive from the old one with the pics included transferred to the new one. Worked fine. I went in to look at them about 6 months ago, only to discover somehow I deleted the WHOLE FREAKING THING. I still don't know how, and maybe my 2 year old is the culprit, as he randomly sneaks on the computer and pounds away, but I was devastated. All of the pics from my 5 yo being born and infant were GONE.

    Thankfully, I came across the original memory cards from my digital cam and reloaded them on my computer and printed out a bunch. (Lesson learned!) I knew there was a reason I don't keep using the same memory card and deleting the pics after they're downloaded!!

    Needless to say, this could come in crazy handy for me!!

    1. OH NO!!! Well, I am glad you found the memory cards. I do that too!!! I never reuse memory cards. But this picture keeper so super easy and now I know my pics are all in one place:)

  3. This sounds like a great product--I'm terrified of losing my pictures!!

    1. It really is a great product! I can't believe I didn't get one ages ago:)

  4. I SOOO need one of these. I amd definatly gonna be checking it out. I have a small photography busines. Nothing much. Few months back I did a wedding for the first time. As I get more photoshoots...this WOULD be AWESOME. Not to mention...I have a teen and pre-teen.

  5. I'll give it a shot! What have I got to lose? Plus I love Katie and her blog so it's a win-win, even if I don't win.


  6. If there’s one thing that glitches in modern technology has taught us is to be prepared for the unexpected. Good thing you found yours but I think it will be more convenient for you if you have a backup system that’s good for both pictures and all other documents.
